It’s taking the help of global activists to get Black medical students out of Ukraine

The World

The 4.5 million Ukrainians who have fled the country since the start of the war have mostly been welcomed into neighboring countries. That has not been the case for the tens of thousands of non-Ukrainians fleeing, many of them medical students from Africa. Many have been turned away from buses and trains leaving the country and once in a third country, have been treated badly, denied benefits, and in some cases, detained. Marco Werman speaks with Hector Addison, the co-founder of the African Canadian Association of Ottawa, an organization which is helping to evacuate Africans and other people of color from Ukraine.
